Community Activated Medicine (C.A.M.)™ was coined and developed by our founder and offers free public and professional educational workshops, training's, community events, and support groups that address mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, isolation, suicide, survivors of homicide, sexual assault, domestic violence, and other victims of crimes. It is our goal to take a trauma-informed healing approach to raise awareness and community action on trauma and stress caused by social injustice and historical and intergenerational trauma and adversity. C.A.M.™ is where healing ways and community activism intersect to create action-oriented wellness; it is where people are the medicine.
We host 2 Annual C.A.M.™ gatherings each year to activate social justice and advocacy to address mental health gaps in our community. Our Youth and Elder C.A.M.™ Gathering has workshops around addressing suicide, depression, bullying and building community. Our fall C.A.M.™ Gathering partners with the Red Sand Project to raise awareness and activate healing for those impacted by the cascading effects of sexual assault, human trafficking and Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women that is seen through higher rates of depression, substance use, and other mental health concerns.
